5 Reasons to Upgrade to a King Mattress

How do you choose the right size mattress for your lifestyle? Should you and your partner get a queen or opt for the king or California king? We're breaking down how to choose the right size mattress to get your best sleep.

Let’s be honest, a king size mattress is #goals. You can spread out and have your own space or get cozy and snuggle with your partner. Plus, you can spend time with your kids and furry friends without everyone being on top of each other.

If you have the space, treat yo'self with a king size mattress (and get better sleep, too). We’re breaking down the 5 reasons you should upgrade to a king size mattress.

1. A king size mattress gives you more bed space

We'll start with the most obvious reason a king size mattress rocks: you have a big bed with a lot of space! That may sound silly, but think about it: a queen size bed is 60 inches wide. That gives each partner only 30 inches of personal space. (That’s only slightly bigger than a crib mattress, btw.)

A king size bed, however, is 76 inches wide, which gives each person 38 inches of their own space. That's almost a twin mattress for each person—a twin size mattress is 39 inches wide.

A California king size bed is not quite as wide as a King bed, but it gives you 4 extra inches of length, so it's great for taller people, or back sleepers who like to sleep with their arms overhead.

2. You and your partner can have your own space

We understand that your bedroom is more than just where you sleep. It's where you read, (binge) watch TV, fold laundry, get work done and catch up with your partner and kids, too. That's why having a king bed is so great—you and your partner both have your own space when you need it (almost a twin bed, remember!?) and there's plenty of surface area to get things done. Plus, just because you have all that extra space doesn't mean you can't get close and cuddle at bedtime.

3. It's the perfect space for family time

Not only does a king size mattress give you and your partner your own sleeping space, but when it’s time for a movie marathon or a little family bonding, having a king size mattress means there’s room for everyone else, too. Come one, come all! Your king bed will fit the whole family, fur-children included.

If you have a furry friend who likes to sleep with you, a California king size mattress might be the right choice. Because a California king size mattress has a few extra inches at the bottom, you'll both be comfortable (and be able to spread out) all night.

4. You’ll get better sleep 

Kicking, flailing and rolling, oh my!

If you and your partner are sharing a full size mattress or queen size mattress, this probably sounds familiar to you. With less space in a smaller bed, you’re more likely to bump into each other while you sleep, waking you (or both of you) up. In a king size bed, you’ll both get the rest—and sleep—you need.
